On behalf of West River/Lyman Jones (WR/LJ) Rural Water, they would like to thank the City of Fort Pierre for implementing water conservation measures this summer to help the system make it through the extreme drought. The City’s efforts had a significant impact on reducing daily peak flows.
WR/LJ is lifting the system-wide water restrictions on Friday, September 15, 2017. Again they appreciate the City’s assistance as they would not have been able to sustain continuous flows without the conservation measures.
Notice is hereby given that the City Council will conduct a public hearing on Monday, September 18, 2017 at 6:35 pm CDT to consider the following ordinance modification:
ORD 1014-PUBLIC HEARING REGARDING ZONING ORD CHANGE (002)

The occupant/owner of any private premises, abutting on any public street, road, or alley within the City shall keep all trees standing upon such premises or between the same and the center of the adjoining street, road, or alley trimmed so no branch is lower than ten (10) feet above the surface of the street, road, or alley and eight (8) feet over any sidewalk. Remember to keep all such trees trimmed so that no trunk, limb, or branch should come in contact with any street lighting, power, or other electrically charged wire when such wires are lawfully strung on posts located on any public street, road, or alley or between the lot lines and curb of any street. Diseased or dead trees are also determined to be a public nuisance and are required to be removed. Refer to City ordinance section L for more detail. The Public Works Department will be marking trees with an orange ribbon around the base of the tree.

The City of Fort Pierre has contracted with Brosz Engineering to conduct a new Flood Plain Study as a result of FEMA requirements. For this survey Brosz Engineering will be surveying property in Fort Pierre in the Marion’s Garden area and will need to access private property. This project will begin in the near future and will take approximately 2 months. We appreciated your patience during this time.
